Lacey Lee Wilcox knew that people did crazy things at weddings, so when Tyler Winter sparked afire in her veins with his reckless smile and kissed her long and hard, she felt an irresistible urge to melt against him, even if a free-spirited gypsy with a houseful of eccentric relatives could never truly belong to a handsome hero in a three-piece suit! Enchanted by Lacey's sLacey Lee Wilcox knew that people did crazy things at weddings, so when Tyler Winter sparked afire in her veins with his reckless smile and kissed her long and hard, she felt an irresistible urge to melt against him, even if a free-spirited gypsy with a houseful of eccentric relatives could never truly belong to a handsome hero in a three-piece suit! Enchanted by Lacey's sweet sexiness, Tyler tempted her with teasing kisses, while his knowing hands played havoc with her body. Lacey accused Tyler of being a flirt just out for a fling, but he disarmed her with picnics and wildflowers, charmed her mother and enlisted her father in his headlong crusade to win her heart. Lacey wanted to believe Tyler's vows to cherish her, but after so many years of caring for everyone else, she was afraid to admit she needed anyone the way she longed for him. Could he tame her fears and teach his passionate, practical lady that she'd always be home in his arms?...

For Love of Lacey Reviews
2.5 Stars.I stopped reading this book about 3 chapters in and did a little research. It turns out this is a re-realease of a title that originally hit the market back in the 80's. You can tell this from the writing (hence the reason I stopped, as I haven't heard the phrase "Yuppie" in a long time), it is a little dated, the characters and language used are tvery 80's. It reminded me of a Classic Mills & Boon book, which in the right place and time isn't such a bad thing.I did continue reading and once I got into the groove of it being written over 20 years ago, I did quite enjoy Lacey & Tylers story.This is the sort of book you read, when you are coming down from a massive book hangover, or you aren't sure what to read next, entertaining enough, but more of a filler than a keeper.ARC provided by Netgalley.
This was just a really awkward book. The writing style was incredibly disjointed. For instance, a character would describe a scene or a person we had met in a way that would not make sense considering the event/person we had been introduced to. This happened continuously throughout the book. Tyler keeps referencing the "joy" that Lacey has brought into his life, but I honestly never saw an example of this. Lacey once says that Tyler and Lacey's mother are kindred spirits, a remark that was so out of the blue that I had to go back and read the previous scene to try and discern where she had gotten that idea from. I never figured it out. Those are just a few examples I highlighted, there were more that I just passed over, especially closer to the end.The dialog was unbelievably over-the-top, an unrealistic idea of how "southerners" speak. We had everything from multiple uses of "Lordy", to "Whahoo", to "Sweet Suffering Je-housh-a-phat" and "Horsefeathers". Every time a character used that over-exaggerated speech I literally rolled my eyes. I live in the Deep South, and I have never met anyone speak like these people did. Every single character felt like a caricature, and not just the "goofy" side characters that were in Lacey's "family". Add to that Tyler and Lacey not sitting down to get to know each other until well after the midway point of the book, and only then touching on the subject of Tyler having been married to Callie, Lacey's best friend... Yeah. I really wanted to like this book because of the set-up, but the whole thing was just awkward. Note: This book is a repub from 1988, which explains why Tyler can't call Lacey when her family's phone service is cut off.

Lacey is a hippie girl to the core who rides around in her lavender van with her dolls and clowns spreading cheer from craft show to hippie commune. Tyler is a straight laced real estate mogul who attends his ex-wife's wedding and finds himself wanting to spend time with non-other than the red haired gypsy Lacey.This is a re-release to ebook format from the book and it does show it age in both dialogue and references (Thankfully I understood them). Tyler finds himself finding his inner self after living in the corporate yuppie world (yes, yuppie -see book for details) and wants to grow with Lacey and her family and their laid back lifestyle.Lacey finds out that Tyler really does have a hidden talent and that this was the life he was really meant to lead.
In For Love of Lacey by Sandra Chastain, Lacey Lee Wilcox remembers her best friend’s ex-husband, Tyler Winter, from two years ago as a cynical and not very friendly guy. Not only did he insult her, he was also not happy about her friend selling her the van for $500, which he did not consider enough money. Unfortunately he needed to be informed since the title was in his name.Now Tyler is at her friend’s bohemian wedding, and she has to make sure that Tyler won’t ruin it. While her friend reassures her that everything between them is over, she cannot help but wonder if he still loves her. But no matter what, Lacey will make sure that the wedding goes through without a hitch. Read More...
Review featured on www.books-n-kisses.com3.5 Stars This is a re-release from 1988 and while there are a few things things that are dated it is worth the read. Tyler is so adorably cute. He made me smile a number of times. Lacey cracks me up too. They are quite the pair. The mood does change some about half way through the story and turns a little more serious but it is still a really good read…. it just looses some of the fun element of it.This is a quick read and worth having around for the in between books pick up. Disclaimer:I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
this was a whimsically cute story.....but really short...only 132 pages. Tyler & Lacey are great characters but the dialogue for Tyler just didn't seem to fit the idea I had of the character. Lacey was a free spirit & kind of a gypsy & her dialogue fit her. The story was fast paced right from the start & was hilarious at times that I laughed so hard I was crying, but it just didn't seem like a real story to me. I will be looking for more from Sandra Chastain to see if this is the norm or if it was just a fluke of a story. I did enjoy the book just wished that we would've seen their wedding & if Lacey was already pregnant & if she was how was Tyler going to handle her being pregnant.
This book was a DNF at 8%. What can I say...it was just weird. I was so confused reading the first chapter that I couldn't waste time reading the rest of it. I couldn't figure out if the guy was attracted to the girl, girl attracted to the guy, sexual innuendoes? I think it was just poorly written.
